    Default HELP WITH HOMEWORK!!

    HELP ME WITH A PROBLEM,,,, A VERY SIMPLE PROBLEM...


    1. Design and implement a class called Dog that contains instance data that represents the dogs name and age.
    2. Define the Dog constructor to accept and initialize instance data. Include getter and setter methods for the name and age
    3. Include a method to compute and return the age of the dog in "person years" (seven times the dogs age)
    4. Include a toString method that returns a one-line description of the dog.
    5. Create a driver class called Kennel, whose main method instantiates and updates several Dog objects.



    PLEASE HELP ME!!

    Not that you wanted someone to, but this is not a place where people just do homework for you.

    So what is it you need help with?

    I am lost on how to create the toString, that's all. Was hoping to see the flow of the program to see if it makes sense. My teacher is terrible.

    I am lost on how to create the toString
    Are you familiar with the toString method? Take a look at the Object class, which every class inherits from, which has a toString method, that every class can override to return a customized String.

    My teacher is terrible
    To quote KevinWorkman's article, which I recommend reading:

    Don’t: Blame the teacher. Plenty of people learn on their own without the benefit of a teacher, classmates, or a classroom. Saying things like “my teacher never explained this!” is just a waste of time. The answer is out there- find it
